What are your general comments?

"The interview day started early at 7:45am and we met in a group with the Director of Admissions who spoke about the school and answered our questions. We watched a video made by the medical students about the school followed by more questions/answers. There were two very relaxed, conversational interviews one with a faculty member and the second with an MD-PhD student. Lunch with the med students was great. They were all happy and enthusiastic. We took a tour of the medical school and saw the outside of the new building set to open soon." Report Response
